GF Machining Solutions’ Mikron HSM 500 MoldMaster (MM) high-speed milling machine is designed as an all-in-one production system, enabling shops to build a range of mold- and die-related components, from 58 Rc steel mold cores to hot pressing dies and sinker-EDM electrodes for intricate mold cavities.

The machine is equipped with a 42,000-rpm HSK spindle that uses ceramic hybrid ball bearings with oil-air minimal lubrication, as well as liquid-cooled stator jacket and bearings. This vector-controlled motor spindle ensures fast acceleration to full speed as well as high torque at low speeds. As a complement to the high-speed spindle, the machine cuts at feed rates as fast as 784.4 ipm (20 m/min.) and rapid traverses as fast as 1,574.8 ipm (42 m/min.).

The HSM 500 MM also features graphite extraction system touch-probe capability and absolute optical linear scales with 20-nanometer step resolution on its X, Y and Z axes for precise machine positioning. The machine also minimizes thermal effects on accuracy through its polymer granite base material and liquid-cooled feed and drive motors, spindle motor, and electrical cabinet.
